That's probably going to be the next candidate to go West for rebuild.

Right now we have 1034 and 1055 in work service and 1071 is listed as awaiting repairs in the roster. Most likely they will all be next to get sent out to be rebuilt once 1025, 1051, and 1064 gets accepted to service. Maybe before that happens. Who knows. Only time will tell to see what happens first.

It has been a few months since they sent a unit for rebuild since 1029 and 1067

1071 has been cleaned off at the BET after the oil explosion a few weeks ago. It is should be back on the road soon. 1034 and 1055 have HEP issues (I think) and are working alongside the 2 Gensets for powering work trains.

Nothing showing in Erie for 1026 or 1069

Did 1051 have a raised letter horn when it was a 2C , if it does i assume they wont change 1051's horn
  by JacobKoppel
 
Yes 1051 had a raised letter horn. Its horn was taken off during the 2C in-house rebuild program and put on 1070. 1070s horn was taken off and given to a horn collector. With no horn to put back on 1051 it got a brand new raised letter K5LA in 2017.

the 1060 is back in Readville after a Middleboro Xtra Saturday, 12/ 11
  by TrainFan1035
 
So I assume 1051 still has that 2017 Raised letter K5LA, or they put another one on when it was being rebuilt

Is 1058 testing yet?
  by Commuterrail1050
 
I think last I heard it was in the shop receiving decals. I’m pretty sure the next ones testing when they are ready are 1026 and 1069.

the 1064 and 1065 were in Middleboro on 12/22
  by TrainFan1035
 
So they are both entering service soon?
  by Commuterrail1050
 
1065 was down in Rochester for repairs and hopefully 1064 has finished testing to return to service. Not sure what’s going on with 1025, 1051, and 1066. I also heard that 1060 was at readville I believe.

The 1066 was sent to Rochester this past week. The 1064 & 1065 were picked up in Middleboro and brought to Readville.
